Customizable Coverage for HealthTech Companies

The new HealthTech Industry Practice is an extension of Chubb’s extensive experience in serving HealthTech companies through its Life Sciences and Technology industry practices.

Leadership and Digital Accessibility

The HealthTech Industry Practice will be overseen by Louise Joyce, Head of Industry Practices for EMEA, and led by Victoria D’Silva, Life Science Practice Leader for the UK & Ireland, who will head a dedicated underwriting team. Joyce emphasized the practice’s focus on providing flexible, comprehensive coverage quickly and efficiently through Chubb Ignite, the company’s digital platform. This allows brokers to arrange cover for their HealthTech clients online with ease.

D’Silva highlighted the complex nature of HealthTech firms and their exposure to a variety of risks. She assured that the new product integrates a range of first- and third-party covers, providing certainty and comprehensive protection even in claims involving multiple types of injuries and causes. 

The HealthTech offering will be part of Chubb’s broader Life Sciences Industry Practice, joining other industry practices in the UK such as Real Estate, Technology and Media, and Climate Tech. Chubb’s global capabilities, local presence, and extensive industry experience underpin its industry practices, ensuring robust and reliable support for HealthTech companies navigating an ever-evolving landscape.
